Oh I love that picture Patricia! Lovely.

I love visiting aquariums and museums - much fun!

Mike, thank you so much for the documentary leads. I really like to watch them. Also, for just a bit of relaxation and entertainment I like to watch the various cam shots, watching a nest of eagles is not very exciting, but it surely is relaxing.

While reading an article today on LiveScience about African ecosystems, they had a picture of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Just wanted to share. Absoloutely beautiful.

Steph, I love nature documentaries and there are many available on the internet. Since I don't have a TV, I often don't see the current ones.
Tony, the photo of migration of wildebeests and zebras across the Serengeti Plains just seems impossible. It looks like they might need a family planning discipline as well. I know water is a big problem there; I do hope their climate conditions stay favorable to wildlife.
